Is Indian Media beyond redemption???

Indian readers and viewers are aghast at what is being offered in the print and in the electronic media. We are all collectively praying and hoping this honeymoon period of the BJP government comes to a quick end and media reverts to reporting the facts instead of all the trivia that it has been passing off as News.

If one was to believe the media in India nothing of consequence and significance has happened post 26th May 2014. After the video released by Dr.Kiran Bedi which set the record straight about the claims being made by that criminal anchor of that corrupt Timesnow channel.

Media has all but been buried deep into the ground; it will take a Herculean effort on part of those who still enjoy credibility with Indian public to resurrect this 4th pillar of democracy. Unheard of reactions are being reported by people on SM Zee News has blocked a viewer on Twitter because he asked a few inconvenient questions.

Amrit Hallan makes a telling point about how the important news is being given a go by for the inconsequential. Udayan Bose takes a serious swing at Rajdeep Sardesai for his well known biased views on BJP. There is Ankit Lal of Aam Aadmi Party this party and its people have caused more damage to quality of politics than any known political party of past or present.

Congress is unable to contain itself and has taken to objecting to every little thing that BJP government does. This is reflecting very poorly on Congress, without power it’s a group of sour whiners. Nothing is complete without mentioning NDTV and its pathetically low standards of professionalism.  Only channel which refers to terrorists as guerrillas and the state of Jammu & Kashmir as Indian controlled Kashmir. No media anywhere in the world would be indulging in this and getting away unpunished, but then we are unique “it only happens in India.”

Mr. Vikram Chandra of NDTV seems to have forgotten India was the toast of the world under PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee of BJP, Congress messed up India from 2004-2014 and now PM Modi of BJP and NDA  government are hard at work to recover the lost ground as also ensure we make substantial all round progress.

Tehelka may have folded up, its has left behind a very unhappy and rabidly communal person who celebrates suffering of the members of majority community all in the name of secularism.

Evidence of misreporting, fake reporting, motivated reporting is mounting on a daily basis, we would soon reach a point; where it will be fait accompli to clean the media. Sharing cartoons by Mr. Arun Kohli, which speak for themselves, take away the need to write more on the state of media.

Dr. Bedi caught the rat by his tail & flung him in public #ArnabTheRat

Last two days have been more focused on the role Media in India is playing, it’s apparent to all who wish to observe the high levels of distress being experienced by all the known personalities of TV channels who collectively raise a din which can be heard in heaven also.

Radia Tapes to Barkha Dutt, Madison Square Garden to Rajdeep Sardesai, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar fake interview to Sagarika Ghose and now we have Dr.Kiran Bedi to Arnab Goswami of Timesnow. This man has sunk to the lowest possible level and dragged media down with himself. Video released by Dr. Kiran Bedi clearly establishes she did not run away as has been drummed by Arnab and his minnows in the channel. On the contrary Dr.Bedi has caught him like a Rat by the tail and flung him in full public glare.

This is a very serious matter with the elections due in Delhi such adverse publicity can harm her election process and give an unfair advantage to opponents. People of Delhi could be deprived of an efficient and stable government.

This incident needs to be acted upon by ECI because it interferes with free and fair process of elections. By BJP because it harms their chances of winning and forming a Government, as also defames their nominee for the post of Chief Minister, by NBA for spreading falsehood; By Ministry of Information & Broadcasting since this is their domain and duty to ensure proper conduct by all TV channels.

There are other anchors, who are also on a similar assignment to somehow trip BJP in these elections, no one seems to be able to get the required traction so far, Sheila Bhatt even ventured into Dr. Bedi’s private life.  

Sreenivasan Jain of NDTV seems to be very upset with Dr. Kiran Bedi for stating “RSS is great organization that has united the country”, Jain’s pugs are out on a cue commenting on Twitter about this statement.

Janardan Dwivedi has praised PM Modi, will he last in the Congress party? How long? This is not what Congress party and its Top Brass appreciates. This party can’t even pay for its website. One Mr Sanjay Puri got up and walked away with the Congress website since he had been funding it.

Rana Ayyub of Tehelka fame is upset at people joining BJP and more particularly those who have walked out of Aam Aadmi Party. This is sheer hate and nothing else.

There was another good news and that was Late Srinavasa Ramanujan’s cryptic deathbed puzzle of 1920 solved.

Truth revealed by Dr. Kiran Bedi who had also taped the interview.
